Details on nVidia G80 GPU

By Justin Mann on February 1, 2006, 7:31 PM
According to some rumors, though mostly word of mouth, nVidia's newer line of GPUs in the G80 series are set to be around this April. These ones are particularly awesome because they will be the first true dual-core GPUs, as opposed to multiple cores per PCB and SLI. These new beasts also carry DirectX10 support, Shader Model 4.0, core speeds 800MHz with room for growth and be based on the newer “half-node” 80nm process, resulting in a much appreciated heat reduction. These might also be the first cards on the market to utilize GDDR4. If any of this pans out, the start of 2Q 2006 will look very good for the video card market. Read more details here.
